Fresh salsa is always a treat, but if it’s not the right season for fresh tomatoes, or you are in a pinch, Trader Joe’s has you covered for a variety of sweet, savory, or spicy salsas that are so delicious and don’t taste like your typical store bought and jarred salsa.
Trader Joe’s has a great selection of practically everything you can think you need and want to eat, but when we came across their many different salsa options, we knew we had to give them a try. And you know what….they did not disappoint!
I am a huge fan of chips and salsa! Mexican restaurants for me (Brittany) are a huge weakness because I literally stuff myself on chips and salsa. When I was pregnant with my son, I would keep a bag of tortilla chips at work in my desk and eat chips and salsa almost everyday for breakfast. 🙂
I am constantly buying the Jack’s Special Fresh Salsa at Costco because it is so delicious and tastes like homemade., so when we picked this Harissa Salsa and Roasted Tomatillo & Mango Salsa I was a little skeptical because jarred salsa, to me, doesn’t taste that great. I was completely floored when I first tried the Harissa Salsa. It has roasted red peppers, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and a host of other yummy spices and veggies that make it taste smoky…a good amount of spice, and so delicious. To be honest, I downed the whole jar by myself in a couple of days, and have since bought two more….needless to say I kind of liked it! 🙂
The Roasted Tomatillo Salsa was equally as delicious. I am a sucker for adding mango to anything so this salsa completely peaked my interest. It has fire roasted tomatillos, sweet mangoes and hot chili peppers. We loved it! I love to mix flavors for the perfect bite and this salsa had the sweet, spicy, savory, and crunch from the chip to bring about the perfect afternoon snack.
These two salsas both brought around a good amount of heat….probably mediumish, so if you have a mild mouth, Trader Joe’s also has a No Salt Roasted Tomato Salsa that is equally as delicious and I could have taken a picture of that one if I didn’t eat it and throw away the jar so fast! 🙂
Pair these salsas with our Late July Multigrain Chips we featured last time in our Favorite Find & Tips, and you will have a fast and simple appetizer for your party or just a perfect afternoon snack for yourself!
